Where should I stay in Perth Hills?

  • Mungaring: Mundaring is for the romantics who wish to get some peace and quiet out of their trip. To its east is Zamia State Forest, known for its Bibbulmun Track. Up north, you can walk the Railway Reserve Heritage Trail, which cuts through Mount Helena Tavern in Mount Helena.
  • Bickley Valley: If you've come to Perth Hills for the wine then you must set up home in Bickley Valley. The Bickley Valley Wine Trail is legendary, encompassing boutique wineries and cideries by local makers.
